Deceivingly simple, Leanne Shapton’s Was She Pretty pairs melancholy, broad-stroked portraits with stories about sundry men and their exes…in just a few sentences.

The Nails’ song ”88 Lines About 44 Women”; Jules and Jim.

Does It Deliver?
Droll gemlike lines (”Alasdair’s ex-girlfriend was his first cousin…. They were a close-knit clan of eccentric and photogenic aristocrats”) will amuse, then leave you wistful and wanting more.
